I'm Kendall King, the 6th grade teacher here at Highmore-Harrold Elementary.
I'm a 2006 graduate of Highmore High School and a 2011 graduate of Black Hills State University, where I earned a Bachelor's Degree in Science: Elementary Education and Special Education. The 2019-2020 school year marks the ninth year of my teaching career. I spent four years solely teaching special education, one year teaching 2nd and 3rd grades combined and special education, one year teaching 2nd and 3rd grades combined only, and I'm going into my third year of teaching 6th grade. My duties include teaching math and science to both 5th and 6th grades.
My husband, Chip, our son, Charles Robert, and I live here in Highmore. We are expecting our second child, a boy, in November! We enjoy spending our free time camping, fishing, hunting, cooking, and spending time with our family and friends. Watching our "Wildman Charles" grow and learn every day brings us the greatest joy!
In our classroom, we focus on hard work, responsibility, and accountability. Student's are expected to show up to school on time and prepared to put in a full day's work. I do not assign homework unless a daily assignment doesn't get completed in the amount of time that's been allowed in class. If an assignment does go home, it is to be completed and handed in by the time we start that subject the next day in class. I believe that when my students go home, their time needs to be spent doing things with their families that I can't teach them in school.
